[WIP] GP4 2000 Season - Mclaren MP4/15 Released 12/24/2018

Posted by ColdBlood 
Hello All,

It's a long time since I was at the forum and it is weirdly my very first stand-alone post about 2000 cars.



Introduction:
In the year 2000, we literally witnessed so many heart-beating moments from F1 what it used to be: Roaring V10 engines on the back of 4 wheel beasts, no DRS overtaking manoeuvres, the greatest rivalry between two great champs, a resurrection of the red prancing horse, a return of Honda and you name it. Who wouldn't want to reenact this glamorous season in Grand Prix 4?

In 2006, Enzojz released amazing cars to our forum and they were simply astonishing. It was the moment I decided to PM him to get a chance to have other unreleased cars and I was one of the luckiest ones who could have them from him.

We, GPG members, had waited for him to release the cars but the time passes so quickly: Enzojz got his own life and he needed to move on. I personally believe it was one of the greatest losses but we had to respect each other's life. It was a moment that I started to learn how to modify & map cars and I truly enjoyed my own modified Enzojz's amazing cars.

With Enzojz's permission, I was finally able to present the cars I worked on in 2013 but I had started my own family and it was so difficult to spare my own time: family & work were my priority and I had to move on as others. It was a frustrating moment in my life where I have drifted away from this incredible forum, it felt like turning my back on which I was very fond of.

However, I am finally able to return to the forum because of infinite supports & trusts from our forum members. Especially, a good friend of mine, Tobi(aka kedy89) PMed me about the cars and made me restart to work on cars... So how is the progress going?

Progress:
Some cars are ready to release with minor updates:

1. Mclaren MP4/15: Released on Dec24, 2018 - [www.mediafire.com]


Known Issues which will be fixed in the next version:
- the red rearlight should have a white alpha channel
- there's a bit of a colour mismatch on the nosecone

2. Ferrari F1-2000: Ready to release



- New 2048x2048 textures applied
- Car Shape modified wt extra ploys: Airbox & nose cone

3. Williams FW22: *********# 99% Ready

- Driver's Body added to the 2nd version created by Enzojz & released by Eric aka SkaaningeN

4. Benetton B200: Ready to release


5. BAR Honda 002: *****##### 50% Ready

- HD shape requiring new mapping so that new HD textures can be applied.

6. Sauber Petronas C19: *********# 99% Ready

- #16 Pedro Diniz is ready; gotta work on #17 with minor updates in terms of shaping.
- Mapping of mirrors gotta rework.

7. 2D Rims in HD: *******### 70% Ready




- Enjojz's experimental version of 2D rims compiled and it runs successfully in the game.
- Team specific rims needed; templates of BBS, Enkei & Oz are ready.

End:
I firstly appreciate your enormous support & patience and it is still a long way to finish this amazing voyage but it is such an honour to present a progress of the 2000 project to this amazing community. However...



I am getting a great help from super fantastic team members, but I need more talented people who could join us and make this project done. Come join us WE NEED YOU ;-)

Thanks again and feel free to join the post: Let's make it happen, guys!

Tyres are looking great mate!

Might have to check the trackspec FW22 liveries I did. One of my early edits, not sure how good a job I did back then.

Thanks guys.

It's my favourite season too. I still remember smirks on Michael & Mika's faces when they were monitoring each other's qualifying lap in Suzuka: Prancing horse vs Silver Arrows. What a memory :)

I will keep you guys updated

@MSchumi24 It will be nice to have CSM mode too. Can you share a download link if it is available? Or Do you want me to send cars along with GP4 tweaker coordinates so you can work on?
@Tobi That's a good idea and where do I find the pack?

Also Eric had made some NT skins for the Macca and Ferrari.

Got a mod base ready as well, as said in pm. Currently has a mix of Enzojz's and gp4italia cars.
Btw, the helmet set you sent me a while back, was that a mix of Wazz' works and yours?

@J├╝rgen&Michael Not at this moment but not a bad idea. I will consider that
@Tobi Thx and I will put it together when I release the Williams. Re: Helmet, I believe so: I just tweaked a bit of his work.

Yeeeeees! So looking forward to this!!

If you want, use my NT McLaren and Ferrari textures. But Im sure you can make better. I also have NT textures for Benetton and BAR, but they are copy/paste.

I have to ask, what about the rest of the grid? Jaguar, Arrows, Minardi, Prost and Jordan?

Hello guys,

I need your help/tip on rim textures. I am currently working on OZ rim with a strip so Williams & Jordan teams can have their own specific rim. This is a preview of it:



What is the best radial setting of wheel 1 & 2? I tried Radial Blur-Spin with an amount of 5 & 15, but rotating textures look like too crispy and it doesn't meet my expectations.

Does anyone have a better idea on rim textures?

After finishing rims, I will move onto mapping on BAR HD.

I think I always use 25 and 50. Pretty sure I noted it somewhere, will have a look later.
